Boozy Gummy Bears and Comfort Food at Duke’s NYC!

o

There are those days when I just don’t feel like eating all healthy and nutritious. We have all had those days. When you just can’t eat another salad or baked fish plate. You’d almost rather eat a bowl of dirt with ice cream and chocolate syrup on it. I had one of those days recently where I threw the calorie counts out the window, and decided to go have a fun meal nearby at the newly opened Duke’s on the UES of NYC.

Walking in we were greeted by the friendly hostess and were offered any seat we wanted that were available. As it was early on a weekday the place was mostly empty. Took a seat at a booth and were quickly taken care of by a terrific waitress. She made some perfect recommendations for food and drinks and answered any question we had about the menu and specials.

My observations –

Cool 70’s/80’s pop and rock playing.

Fun roadhouse decor.

Flat screens everywhere. Must be a good football weekend spot.

Plenty of cocktail concoctions. Boozy Gummy Bears!

Happy hour half prices on select libations and appetizers.

Jello shots and syringes! Continue reading Boozy Gummy Bears and Comfort Food at Duke’s NYC!

There’s nothing like a sexy Redhead in NYC!

o (2)

Blondes, brunettes, and redheads. There can be found quite the variety here in NYC, but there is just something to be said when you bump into a sexy redhead.

After hanging with a bunch of friends for drinks in the East Village area we decided to grab a bite to eat. Using the Yelp ap on my phone we discovered The Redhead and called. They were able to hook us up with a table for six with only a minimal wait. As it’s not a large place it was pretty packed, but that was to be expected since this seems to be a popular joint in the hood. Especially on a weekend night. Can be a bit cramped for seating as we discovered but they made it work for us.

It was so dark in here I could hardly read the menu. Using the candlelight I almost set my menu on fire. Had to go with the Fried Chicken which was pretty decent compared to many I have had throughout the city, and the cocktails were strong but tasty. Always a plus in my book. Also, the Wedge Salad accompanying the meal was a nifty side that you don’t see too often in places like this.

Was underwhelmed with the Bacon Peanut Brittle. Not worth the price. I don’t get what everyone sees in this small bowl of peanuts that barely tasted like bacon. So disappointed. Continue reading There’s nothing like a sexy Redhead in NYC!

Schaller’s Stube Sausage Bar – shove a wiener in yo’ mouth!

brat
So many delicious weiners to choose from!

Dude! Now I know were to bite into a tasty wiener in Yorkville!

Schaller’s Stube Sausage Bar is a terrific new little brat and sausage bar opened by Schaller & Weber – old school purveyors of scrumptious German deli meats and charcuterie! It’s their version of German street food with a NYC cool twist.

There is nothing else like this tiny spot on the Upper East Side of NYC. Open until 11pm on most nights. Grab and go, or chow down on your wiener in the small dining room area that is set up with a modern beer hall feel to it. Walk up to the sidewalk storefront window and gaze upon the selection of amazing meats to choose from. Bratwurst, Knackwurst, Weisswurst, Bacon Cheddar Brat, Kielbasa, Beef Wieners  – OH MY!!!!

So much meat to shove in my face! It’s like a gangbang party in my mouth and I want them all in me!

( Wait – did I just say that out loud? ) Continue reading Schaller’s Stube Sausage Bar – shove a wiener in yo’ mouth!

Get a Fried Chicken Baby Belly at Bobwhite NYC!

One of the finest fried chicken dinners I have eaten here in the city!

Seems like many spots are opening up across NYC nowadays touting their famous fried chicken. I have tried many of them but still keep coming back to Bobwhite to get my fried chicken fix. Bobwhite Lunch & Supper Counter is the shady street corner pusher feeding my fried chicken addiction.

And why not? Their chicken kicks ass!

It’s a small spot so sometimes there is a wait. No biggie as it seems most will come here to chow down then leave and not linger. I really hate those people who will hang around and talk and talk after they are finished and just sip their drinks or ask for more water taking forever to give up the table. Get done and get the heck out!  How dare you make us wait in starving drooling anticipation! Leave! Continue reading Get a Fried Chicken Baby Belly at Bobwhite NYC!
